get email accounts from exchange server programmatically

Posted on 2014-02-13

I have a window program that sends an email reminder to a scheduled speaker so that it goes in his/her calendar. But when the admin person confirming the engagement sends the reminder, the reminder is also stored in his/her calendar. How could I have the reminder sent to the speaker's calendar and not go in the admin's calendar?

I think a solution could be if I, somehow, could programmatically use another email account to make Outlook think is from it and send that reminder there instead of the admin's Outlook calendar I would be fine. But I don't know how to do that either.

Anybody wants to help?

Hi, uwYves.

Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean when you say "... when the admin person confirming the engagement sends the reminder ..."  Can you clarify?

Hi BlueDevilFan, the program is used by an administrator that confirms an event and the program automatically sends a reminder to the speaker's event calendar to remind him of the event 24 hours prior, but the reminder is also sent to the administrator who confirmed the event.

Outlook has the "Send on behalf of" functionality which may work in that it may create the calendar entry in the dummy calendar that you may then be able to use to send these invitations.
